    Wow, why don't you take about 5-10% off the top there with that snake talk bud... :D

    Looks good, what time should we show up? ;)

    Ha! I thought the same thing but looked closer at the pic and decided it's just sausage. Or am I wrong?!?

    Looks like a great trip. Thanks for sharing!

    BTW, that same tent is lost somewhere in my garage. I hope. You didn't find yours at a campsite, did you? LOL! The last time I saw mine was on a Mother's Day weekend camping road trip with Bacpacboy, before I knew I was pregnant with Bacpacgirl. I love that thing! It was our gateway shelter, from using a tent to sleeping under a tarp. ;)

    HAH! Next thing you know you'll be on a gateway rug, building your very own gateway dugout.

    Yeah. Backpackboy is in the midst (at the beginning? gulp!) of his teenage growth spurt. He's taller than me now and I think this tent might be too short from him now. If only I could find it... It'll make a great one for the Backpack girl and I, and he can have my solo tent. ;)

    Your tent looks just like the Walmart tent I take. Right down to the minimal ventilation up top. Lol. It she'd were like a pro though and don't weight much. I enjoy it.
